Data show that decapping scavenger enzyme DcpS (DcpS) is a nucleocytoplasmic shuttling protein that activates microRNA (miRNA) degradation.
In DcpS, conformational change is dominated by an anti-symmetric cooperative motion, causing one active site to close as the other opens; however a symmetric motion is also significant.
In vitro decapping assays showed that altered EDC3 (show EDC3 Proteins) is unable to enhance DCP2 (show DCP2 Proteins) decapping at low concentrations and even inhibits DCP2 (show DCP2 Proteins) decapping at high concentration.
DCPS and more generally RNA catabolism, are critical for neurological development, normal cognition and organismal homeostasis in humans.
data demonstrate that DcpS in conjunction with Xrn1 (show XRN1 Proteins) has the potential to regulate RNA stability in a transcript-selective manner in mammalian cells
The central histidine within the DcpS HIT motif is critical for decapping activity and defines the HIT motif as a new mRNA decapping domain, making DcpS the first member of the HIT family of proteins with a defined biological function.
m7GDP breakdown by DcpS should prevent misincorporation of methylated nucleotides in nucleic acids and could generate a unique indicator allowing the cell to monitor mRNA decay.

Furthermore, we show that a novel human histidine triad protein DCS-1, which is expressed together with NR1 in many tissues, can significantly reduce menadione-induced cytotoxicity in these cells
These studies demonstrate that the significance of DcpS extends beyond its well-characterized role in mRNA decay and involves a broader range of functions in RNA processing including nuclear pre-mRNA splicing.
Necessary for the complete degradation of mRNAs, both in normal mRNA turnover and in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Removes the 7-methyl guanine cap structure from mRNA fragments shorter than 10 nucleotides that are produced by 3'->5' exosome-mediated mRNA decay. Releases m7GMP. Can also degrade m7GDP to m7GMP. Has no activity towards mRNA molecules longer than 25 nucleotides.
